1896

The earliest record I can find in a revenue catalogue for this issue is Morley's 1910. This is NOT a new series of these stamps it is just new pins in the perforating machine which left a slightly larger hole than the old pins, not all values have been recorded as having the larger pin separation probably due to the fact plenty of old stock was on hand.

Larger holes from new pins.
